Sunday July 6th marks the 70th anniversary of one of the worst disasters in Connecticut history, the Hartford Circus Fire. We will have complete coverage on Eyewitness and on Face the State we aired a special presentation, “The Day the Clowns Cried.”
“The Day the Clowns Cried,” is a documentary Channel 3 put together in 1969, hosted by Joe Crowley. You’ll see rare film of the fire, interviews not seen in 45 years, and more.
You’ll also see the touching story of Hartford Police Lt. Thomas Barber, who visited the grave of a circus fire victim.
